description

Written from the perspective of the joy of celebrating life rather than lamenting the scourge of chronic illness, this collection of medical columns, short stories, and letters recounts the wonderful and upbeat tale of coping, surviving, and prevailing. Starting out as a medical technician, wife, and mother faced with progressive loss of sight and ambulation, Barry Friedman devised strategies for using her intellect to benefit other patients and medical professionals. Free from self pity and permeated by hope, enthusiasm, and the belief that there was much to be accomplished, Friedman proved to be a keen observer of the sense and nonsense comprising her therapeutic regimen for diabetes, Addison''s disease, and renal failure. Especially helpful are Friedman''s hints for dealing with the necessity of diet and time change during travel and activity while under treatment with insulin. Reading these short stories reveals a sense of humor and a glint of impish satisfaction in just being alive.
